I'm an integrative arts performer, educator, activist, healer, and peace-builder. My joy is to facilitate the creation of "sites for revelation" between and among participants of diverse backgrounds and views about life. I've been practicing and teaching weavings of poetry, martial arts, interpretive dance, and community organizing for 40 years locally, nationally, and internationally. Sharing this work continues to offer access to deep and expansive healing energy within myself, and from other human beings, flora and fauna, the ground and the sky.
